Annual Castings Kids Fishing Derby is Saturday
The Metro Atlanta Hawg Hunters Bass Club presents the 11th Annual Castings Kids Fishing Derby from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Georgia State fishery in Social Circle.
The event is catch and release, although some fish will be harvested.
A casting contest will be held from 11 a.m. to noon prior to a lunch that will be served between noon and 1 p.m. Prizes and awards will be given to the winners from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. during a special presentation.
All children will be supervised by club members and guardians, while the rules for the derby will be enforced. In addition, it is required that everyone registers and signs a release form.
Participants are not required to bring any fishing equipment or bait for the contest. However, it is highly recommended that everyone brings a hat due to the summer heat.
